Student Exchange

Studying abroad is an experience which is strongly recommended. The most suitable time to go abroad is in the third or fourth year of your studies. You can spend either one or two terms in your host university. All credits earned abroad will be included in your degree, either in your studies of English or those of your minor subject, or as elective studies in your degree

The department participates in Erasmus student exchange programmes. For students of English, we have student exchange agreements with the following universities:

Destination Places

Duration of stay per student

University of Limerick, Ireland 4 5 months
Dublin City University, Ireland 4 5 months
Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium 2 5 months

Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen, The Netherlands 2 5 months
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece 2 10 months*

* you may also spend only one term at a destination marked with 10 months.

All of our exchange partners offer courses in English and, most of them, in various other subjects. Free courses in the language of the host country are also on offer to Erasmus exchange students. However, some restrictions may apply to selecting courses from other departments than that of English; please check each university's guides for incoming Erasmus students. 

Deadline for applications 1 March for the following autumn and spring terms and the whole academic year.
